Talinka Quartet ‘Rainbow Over Kolonaki’ album launch

Following an acclaimed debut album Talinka is launching their follow- up. Talinka creates a new, distinctive sound that explores the unique and diverse journeys of four British musicians: Jenny Bliss (a baroque virtuoso), Yaron Stavi (one of Europe’s leading bass players) Gilad Atzmon (an internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist with an affinity for ethnic sounds) and his wife Tali, whose singing has been paired with her theatrical career. The music is at times haunting, connecting with deep moody jazz standards and a new international form of World Music. In the process it touches many bases, with its wide-ranging and evocative arrangements, while Tali’s perceptive and intelligent lyrics enhance the compositions. The outcome is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure. The unusual choice of instruments and combination of personalities creates an amalgam of past and present, East and West. A natural continuum between ethnic, jazz, tango and Early Music, transcending musical boundaries.
